Goodbye Amy xxx




"Why do I wish I never played.
Oh, what a mess we made.
And now the final frame,
love is a losing game"


"Over futile odds
and laughed at by the Gods.
And now the final frame,
love is a losing game"


"You went back to what you knew so far removed
from all that we went through.
And I tread a troubled track,
my odds are stacked.
I'll go back to black"


"We only said goodbye in words
I died a hundred times.
You go back to her.
And I go back to black"

Amy Winehouse
(1983-2011)


Rest in peace, Amy Jade Mermaid

Shall miss her. Need a pair of ballerina flats to mark the day.

Shit. It's like she was just following a script. God damn it.

Thank you for posting something nice. I read another blog that just bashed her. She was still a human being, and I think that what happened to her is just sad. I agree with your final words, Rest in Peace.

Dear Christina, Amy was the reason behind me dying my hair black, I loved her and am glad that I had the opportunity to have seen her play live several times.
The last time I saw her play I was so sad as I knew it would probably be the last. Let's hope she's finally found peace. Love you. x

Those are my two of my favourite Amy songs - I really think she was quite an underrated lyricist as well as an obviously talented singer. You chose great photographs of her too, it's been so sad to see all the terrible pictures of her in the depths of her addiction resurfacing.

I still remember where I was when I heard the news about Kurt Cobain - I was revising for exams and he was of course older than me - now we're losing people younger than I am. It's such a waste. RIP Amy, I'm sorry none of it made you happy.

What an unfortunate, sad loss. She was so talented. But like most geniuses, she too had her flaws. I loved her music, and it's really tragic that we won't get any more of her lovely voice.

Thanks for writing this piece.

I'm really saddened by Amy Winehouse's death. Such a waste of a fantastic talent.

Poor little duck - at least she's not suffering any more. xxx

Alison Cross said...

These photos are beautiful, but she hasn't looked like that for quite a while. Drugs and drink had utterly ruined her.

I prefer to remember her like this too.

Thanks for the post Christina - and thanks for commenting on every single post that I'd made that you'd missed, you've got a kind heart and you must be knackered!

Nice post, Christina. I have been listening to her in the car for the last several days. What a voice she had. I am relieved her voice lives on at least.

Love you loads,

SB

She had such a voice, so talented and underated. I hate that you have to die to be recognized and thats the only time the press seems nice.

In response to your comments on mine, no, the shawl isn't ours unfortunately, I just took it from the web randomly. And yes my waist is shrinking, I've lost one stone so far but lots more left to lose though!

Mrs P said...

I agree with everyone, it is such a shame, so talented and gave so much pleasure to so many of us x

Young at Heart said...

good or bad she was somebody's child....a tragic story, a beautiful talent.....too, too sad that it had to end the way it did xx

Perdita said...

Just so sad. :( A wonderful tribute to a talented, troubled soul.

Pearl Westwood said...

What a lovely tribute x

Comtessedeferveur said...

Poor dear Amy. The last photo is the prettiest picture I've ever seen of her, she looks so healthy and lovely x

Alex said...

Oh what a lovely post about her. I was so saddened by the news and it was made worse by the reaction of some people on Twitter. Honestly I don't know what's wrong with them - jumping straight in to either slate her or bang on about this mythical 27 club. I don't find addiction something to be either mocked or glamourised, it's just incredibly sad.

Its worrying having teenagers:(

You've no idea how much that last verse spoke to me when it came out. My crazy year...

Wonderful tribute to Amy, thank you Christina.

Helena xx

Arabella Bianco said...

Thank you, lovely tribute.

We heard about the tragedy at night on a coach in Sicily, which was quite surreal.

Such talent, but a victim of the modern world.

RIP Amy.

Thank you for publishing something awesome. I study another site that just bashed her. She was still a individual, and I think that what occurred to her is just sad. I believe the fact with your ultimate terms,
